Alan Ayckbourn’s sparkling comedy!

For Richard and Anthea everything in life just falls into place, with their warmth, careless charm, generosity and success they are a truly happy, golden couple.
Over the years they invite their friends, neighbours and business partners to Bonfire Night, Midsummer, Boxing Day and eventually their daughter’s 18th birthday party.

Perhaps it’s inevitable that the others suffer by comparison. Quiet misery, unrequited love and jealousy play their part in this painfully funny comedy.
